No, sadly. They're SUPPOSEDLY being shipped today. They've been in Canada since early July. Long story...

SONY and i will be there and you can count on a setlist being up a half hour after the show tonight! washington heights to my house is a mere 20 minute ride. sorry i do not have the technological skills for live tweeting unless i am sitting at home. you may count on ANCT for some early updates however.....he's a whiz kid!

Twitter:

Alison! Watching the Detectives!


Every Day I Write the Book live was freakin insane!


Mary Louise Parker just got off stage after cage dancing to Monkey to Man. Think she loves Elvis Costello as much as me. So cute!


You Little Fool.


You look so pretty in your new lace sleeves.


Time


Definitely buying a flare bottom jumpsuit tomorrow.


And where are the strong? And who are the trusted?


Angel wanna wear my red shoes.


I've only found blurry pictures of the wheel, but I think I see "Suit Of Lights" and "In Another Room".

EC would normally respond to requests for Alison with "Are you in a hurry to get home?"
Maybe that's the answer... Open with it and then those plebs are free to leave.

right!!! i couldn't keep from laughing as soon as he hit the first chord. "up yours L.I." is what he said right there, got it off his chest, and then blew NYC away the rest of the night.

Great. Fucking. Show.

Has he ever opened with Alison?

I'm very happy with my audio and video captures, so far, at least. I'll start with the audio tomorrow.

Can't wait to hear and see them! Curious how much of Rain is played. Is the trio from IB pursuant to a Jackpot?

So great!!! I'm in the Mood Again? Suit of Lights? Stella Hurt? Stations of the Cross? So fucking fabulous!!!! Some points off for the staff of the The United Palace, who SUCKED--all kinds of imaginary problems with our tickets, useless ushers, overflowing toilets, etc Also, how creepy was that first go-go cage girl--the one with the huge fake tits who kept grinding her crotch on everything? Eeeww! M.L. Parker was right to ask for hand sanitizer...

What a great show :mrgreen:

Reading the Long Island reviews wasn't completely surprising as when we have Imposters shows in London there are always people who go to the show after having quite a few drinks after work, with their suits on and ties undone who shout out Alison, Oliver's Army etc and don't care for the other 25 or so songs. They're the one screaming the words out of tune (a lot like myself but at least I'm not drunk).

Opening the show with Alison was a masterstroke :D
international laughing stock...

VG says

Perhaps it would help if you were !! :lol:
Seriously, I've bemoaned the fact that often I've gone to shows where people around me seem to have no concept as to why they're there - "the artist as background to their social life" and it really pisses me off. I know everyone has a right to do whatever they feel like within reason at a concert but if you really want to brag loudly to your friends about what you told your boss that afternoon, why the f**k don't you do that before the show, after the show or anytime but when the performer you've gone to see is singing a song you don't know and you can't be arsed to listen ! Rant over for the time being - BA it 's about time EC did a crap show for you - I'm sorry but I've now run out of envy ! Looking forward to both digital and analogue versions

SULKY!!!! are you daring to jinx my upcoming wednesday 100th ever EC show, which happens to fall on our 9th wedding anniversary??? IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. i can't help that i almost always pick the RIGHT show to attend, especially when it boils down to a choice of two. do you think i selected the correct one this weekend??? i chalk it up to providence, the Holy Spirit and good old Italian witchcraft! :lol: :lol: :lol: only kidding, i KNOW you want the best possible shows for me because you KNOW the sound of my good old analogue is TOPS!!! i sure hope you see the wheel in 2012. please get to everyone you can. and roll the TAPE!
